Top Performance From Kawasaki WSS Duo At Jerez Tests

151125_11

Four-time WSS champion Kenan Sofuoglu (Kawasaki Puccetti Racing) took his latest-spec Ninja ZX-6R to a remarkable 1’43.009 lap time on the second and final day of his team’s tests at Jerez de la Frontera. His new team-mate and WSS rookie Randy Krummenacher was also on great form in his first test with the team, posting a 1’43.639 personal best lap.

Sofuoglu used his new machine settings and components to the maximum to record his remarkable best time. It was enough to make his the sixth fastest lap of all the various categories on show, including Superstock 1000, BSB and other WSS machines.

Sofuoglu was enthused by this good early pace and although there is some way to go to finalise all the 2016 technical regulation changes on his machinery package, he left Jerez looking forward to the next track sessions.

Moving from Moto2 to WSS in 2016 Krummenacher was pleasantly surprised at many aspects of his new machine’s set-up, setting the second best WSS time at the tests. Working in a methodical way he made a big improvement in his times from day one to day two. He feels there is even more to come when he has more experience of the Pirelli tyres.

As well as the new twin-pronged attack from Kawasaki in the WSS class, Superstock 600 champion Toprak Razgatlioglu (Kawasaki Puccetti Racing) took his very standard 2016 Ninja ZX-10R to a remarkable lap time first time out. His 1’43.414 was only just shy of the 2015 track best time in Superstock 1000. Razgatlioglu only had a race exhaust and some race bodywork fitted on his all-new 2016 machine, which had a standard suspension and engine set-up at this test.
